Java web hosting support.





raneez_n
does frihost support java web hosting.
I heard that java apps can be hosted on linux servers, is it true?
badai
if you are talking about servlet or JSP, no.

if you are talking about applet, yes.

if "java apps" mean applet, yes.

if "java apps" mean application that you run within JRE, where you download it and run, then yes.

yes, you can run "Java" webserver like websphere and tomcat on linux. but here on frihost they run apache with PHP and Perl as server side script, and not servlet or JSP. but you can always embed your applet in your html using object tag to run on client's browser. no problem with that.

the thing is, what is it that you want to achive. if you make it clear, we can assist you on how to do it on frihost.

or if you just feeling nosy about any server, you can check it on http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph

it will tell you everything about the webserver, then use wikipedia to find out more what was listed on netcraft, like what it can do, or what you can do with it. but first, you must know what you are looking for. like "java apps" is kind of vague, even for a living person.

Has anyone managed to get Java running on Frihost page. For me, it does not work. It will get me interested in Frihost sample pages. I think of an applet for a game. When I rang no Java applet.

i didn't try, because it just don't make sense an applet cannot run on standard web server. it's like you cannot open html with notepad.

but i can help you test.

1. download this file
http://javaboutique.internet.com/AcuteScroller/AcuteAppletsExample.zip

2. put it in your frihost

3. access the Example.html file.

then again, as i wrote on 2nd post, you must make yourself clear, are you talking about servlet or JSP, or are you talking about applet.

"Java" is not enough. you must explicitly say jsp, servlet or applet.

now you say you can't run applet. well, even if you don't have a web server, you can just open any html embedded with applet on your local hardisk like any html file. it will show up in your browser. if the applet don't show up then something is really wrong with either your browser, your system, or yourself.

now try to download the acute example and just load it up from your local hardisk as file without any web server if you don't believe me.

Is there any way to install something in my hosting folders to support servlets?

I'm using Frihost lately to test mobile apps, and some scripting can't be done at client's side, because java ME implementation doesn't support it. So the answer seems to be using servlets.

Thanks for any answer.

No, we only support client-side Java.

OK. Smile Perl and Python should be enough...
Need Java more CPU/RAM than Perl and Python or is it more insecure? Just for interest... ^^

It's not standardly used in a shared hosting environment. I suppose it is possible and I guess there are some hosts that offer it, but (at least in my opinion) Java is a lot more suited for an application that is constantly running and not for stand-alone requests.
